An Ex

I saw my ex at the filling station yesterday
Clothed in finery
His pungent bitterness disguised as Calvin Klein’s scent
He tried to scorn me into grounded shame….. as usual
But I stood proudly to let him see what I have become

I am all woman now
A beautiful goddess who walks upon earth
I am fine whiskey
A comfort to the cold and lonely
I am good wishes
An answer to someone’s hope and prayers
I am cute wisteria
Lovely and enough for me
I am earned wisdom
Life has taught me greatly
And I am a warrior
My scars are proudly displayed from battles won

I tell him
This is who I am
And you can never be Calvin Klein
